TULUM, Mexico – The aviation landscape of Mexico is set to receive a significant boost as Secretary of National Defense (SEDENA), Luis Crescencio Sandoval, unveiled compelling insights regarding the upcoming launch of the Mexican airline, Mexicana de Aviación, slated to commence operations in 2023 with a fleet of 10 aircraft. These eagerly anticipated additions to the skies are scheduled for delivery in the forthcoming months of September and October.
In an exclusive revelation, the Secretary elucidated that the strategic collaboration driving Mexicana’s operations is poised to enhance the overall connectivity of diverse airborne services, encompassing passenger transit, freight transport, and mail delivery.
“An impressive fleet of 10 state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 aircraft, complete with their proficient crews, is set to grace the skies. While three of these airborne marvels are poised for handover on September 30th, the remaining seven will ceremoniously join the fleet on the following Monday, October 30th,” Crescencio Sandoval enthusiastically conveyed.
Delving further into the intricate tapestry of this endeavor, the head of SEDENA meticulously divulged that the leadership mantle of this visionary enterprise has been bestowed upon a distinguished Air Force general, a luminary bearing extensive expertise in the realm of aviation operations and administration.
Furthermore, this esteemed official unveiled the dual locational fortresses that shall serve as Mexicana de Aviación’s epicenters. The primary bastion shall be established within the historic confines of the Santa Lucía ex-hacienda, seamlessly integrated within the proximal precincts of the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA). A complementary enclave shall also grace the budding horizons of the new Tulum airport, solidifying the airline’s reach and influence.
In a decisive proclamation concerning ticket pricing, the Secretary of National Defense affirmed that Mexicana’s fares shall bear an average reduction of 18 to 20 percent, offering prospective travelers a compelling incentive to embark on their journeys. This financial respite shall be extended as a result of the symbiotic relationship shared between the airline and select government-operated airports. Such harmonious collaboration provides the fertile soil for this percentage-based relief to flourish, all the while underscoring the steadfast commitment to punctuality and unwavering service quality.
“We envisage an average reduction of flight costs ranging from 18 to 20 percent. This heralds a new era of quality service at an affordable cost. With its primary hub at AIFA and secondary hub at Tulum, punctuality and service excellence are assured,” emphasized Sandoval.
In closing, Luis Crescencio Sandoval affirmed that the inception of this monumental initiative will usher in direct employment opportunities for a cadre of 209 individuals, a number that is set to burgeon with the recruitment of an additional 745 personnel upon the commencement of full-fledged operations.
